Top Ten Things I Am Thankful For

This weeks’ post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish has a distinctly American flavour to it….here goes!

1. Log fires – the only (literally!) way to keep warm this winter.

2. Feedly – the pending death of Google Reader frightened the bejesus out of me. Although not perfect, thank goodness there is still out there to organise my chaotic mind.

3. Fingerless gloves – warm hands yet, can I use my phone/get into my purse/prize the cork out of a bottle of wine with them on? Yes I can!

4. My local pub – tasty ale, helpful landlord and scrummy, cheesy food.

5. Charles Dickens – Chilly, atmospheric Victorian drama. I really do need to squeeze another one into my winter reading.

6. Christmas-themed coffee cups – does this make my morning latte taste better? Hoah yes! (I’m so easily pleased)

7. Book clubs – thanks to my brilliant little group (now one and a half years young!) I can now share my bookish thoughts in the comfort of a nice warm pub on a monthly basis

8. Paul Gallico – Lovely, lovely, lovely

9. Salvage Hunters – if not reading, the perfect way to while away an afternoon is undoubtedly watching Drew Pritchard buy quirky antiques and lusting after them accordingly.

10. Book bloggers – the online bookish community has transformed my life and restored my literary karma over the past few years. I thank you all.

  1. Coffee always tastes better out of Christmas coffee cups and I’m a big fan of fingerless gloves for when I’m typing at work. Our office gets verrrry cold! Though I could do without co-workers making fun of me – apparently sparkly striped gloves with a panda face on them aren’t professional or something! lol

  2. Sorry if you get this comment twice – my ancient laptop is majorly acting up! I’m a big fan of fingerless gloves for typing when I’m in the office – our place gets very cold! I could do without my co-workers making fun of me though. Apparently sparkly gloves with a panda face on them aren’t professional? lol
